River Dart Trip

The weather has broken, the sun is shining and Nick has planned the year’s first paddling trip for the weekend of the 16th and 17th of February.

We will be paddling the Dart Loop on Saturday 16th starting at New Bridge (http://goo.gl/maps/g5Nwk) at around about 9:30am. This is a hugely popular classic grade 2/3 often used to introduce beginners to whitewater and the trip is open to anybody who is at a standard that can paddle the Legacy course. As well as being a great place to practice your whitewater skills with the benefit of some coaching from Nick this is an excellent social event on the Nomad’s calendar.

Paddling plans for Sunday will depend on the group paddling ability and on river levels.

Nick is staying at the Abbey Inn in Buckfastleigh from the evening of Friday the 15th. If you also want to stay there the details are;

You can of course make your own arrangements but please try not to be late for putting on the river in the morning.

If you are interested in going on this trip (and I recommend that you do!) then please let me know and I will liaise with Nick.

If you have any questions feel free to email Nick directly or to email me: trips@nomadkayakclub.co.uk.

If you want to car share or have space in your car please let me know and I can try to help organise car sharing where required.

Hope you can make it,
Tony Becker
